Activity Overview


As students read, a storyboard can serve as a helpful character reference log. This log (also called a character map) allows students to recall relevant information about important characters. When reading a novel, small attributes and details frequently become important as the plot progresses. With character mapping, students will record this information, helping them follow along and catch the subtleties which make reading more enjoyable!

Clicking "Use This Assignment" will copy both the example above and a blank template into your account. Feel free to use as is, or to edit for the level of your class. Printing it as worksheets, for your students to complete while reading is a fast and easy way to incorporate this character map into your classroom.
